Gwinnett Challenge 2018

It’s time once again for the Great American Cleanup – three full months devoted to doing our part for this big beautiful planet we all share! Celebrating its 20th year right here in Gwinnett, the Great American Cleanup™ represents the nation’s largest annual community improvement program. In the years since it was first launched by Keep America Beautiful in 1999, Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful (GCB) has brought that same spirit of action a little closer to home by motivating countless aspiring environmental stewards to help keep our local community green, clean and beautiful. And the best part is…. YOU could collect some green for going green! At the end of the Challenge, we select the best and the brightest from submitted community improvement projects to win CASH PRIZES (to the tune of $500 EACH)! Want to know how to get involved in the Great American Cleanup – Gwinnett Challenge 2018? Check out the Gwinnett Challenge Rules and Guidelines here!


Step One >>>  Get Your Pledge Counted:

Just as we take the pledge of allegiance to show our spirit of patriotism for this great nation, we’re asking Great American Cleanup participants to take a pledge of a different sort to show your spirit of environmentalism. By taking the pledge, you promise to change habits and practices at home, school, work, and play, and to be a good environmental steward – caring for the land, water, and community every day. One individual and one school will be selected to earn CASH PRIZES FOR GOING GREEN! Taking the pledge is the all-important first step towards having a positive impact on the world around us!

Projects can be completed by individuals or by a group, such as a school green team, civic organization, local company, neighborhood, etc…: View our list of project categories and ideas, but we LOVE innovation – so feel free to dream up a community improvement project of your own imagining!
